    @Kevinward777 is in front of me.....however, being a follower of Christ (as best I can...I fail a lot) I don't need to plump myself up with titles such as "leadership team member". Neither would any other true believer. We don't need to bolster our ego, blow our own horns (like Onan...LOL!!. See....I just fell again, dammit!....I'm up now) or think of ourselves as wiser or better in any way than the next bloke.

    We'll leave that to you others. Have fun!! @:p

      I wonder how the NRL/rugby union would go if all the christian players decided they weren't welcome and left? Imagine playing in a comp where you're told to just play the game and keep your mouth shut. Even though Jesus instructed followers to spread the word far and wide.

      It reminds me of the time Toby Keith told the Dixie Chicks to just shut up and sing!

        Vegetarians will go to hell. There I said it! Now I will probably be stoned to death for having an opinion that differs from the main stream and politically incorrect. Funny I thought these young men were athletes not political or social leaders. Silly me. Funny I thought we had a basic freedom of speach but it appears that can be contracted away without rendering the contract unconscionable.

          At the risk of getting a little technical, he kind of was an imitator. There is this little known deity that goes by the name of Buddha, who preceded your idol by some 6 centuries, and still pulls a crowd of 300 million fans. He is also celebrated around the world, not so much by the presentation of lavish gifts and consumption of chocolate eggs, but by colourful festivities nonetheless. But yeah, yours is the real one.

            I’ll still talk to you Moz. I have a couple of mates that speak to invisible friends, and they are nice blokes.

                  What a truly inspirational post!
                  What you have stated is completely correct. Christ is no fictional character, and his teachings and legacy are the basis for our society.
                  Please read the book of Revelation, if it’s prophecies do not convince oneself to question the direction mankind is headed, then nothing will.
                  Like you, I don’t go to church and avoid religious plagiarism of Gods word. But I find it truly amazing that non-believers hurl ridicule and hateful comments toward Christians in this so called new age of progressive inclusiveness of all human beings. Something just doesn’t add up?
                  Congratulations on your journey, and well may it continue....BTW out of interest, what club did your brother use? Had to be an iron. I wielded a good 3 iron back in the day. The extended shaft and flatter face made for good contact on a would be burglar. :)

                      I dedicate this to @mozgrame and @BOZO

                      and I should add with no disrespect meant, actually the complete opposite.

                      Its a great song you all might like from one of the very best song writers of all time. Had the pleasure to see him recently at a sold out State Theatre show. Amazing.

                          About 5 minutes ago you posted in another thread that it was fine to punch someone preemptively to defend yourself.
                          Yet you advocate peace for all and use only humility and compassion to fight 'wars'!
                          Not really intending to have a go at your for hypocrisy but just think you ought to explain better where you stand on this. Is it OK for people - and peoples - to defend themselves against aggression. Against oppression and cruelty? Or should we all suck it up and accept every injustice and every bullying, invading, exploiting force that strives to subjugate us?

                          Okay .... we have all seen the list of sinners going to hell ... according to the Gospel and expressed by Folau .... not happy reading because I am certain many of my favourite Silvertails are so doomed .. so so doomed ...

                          But is that list conclusive ..... I believe we need our own approved Silvertails list of Hellbound sinners ...... I'll start ....

                          No hipocrisy what so ever . This is self defence . When you have an aggressor coming at you that you cannot reason with . You have 2 options

                          Option 1 to get beaten to a pulp

                          Option 2 defend your self and stop the bullsht

                          So forget peace, forget turning the other cheek, forget relying only on humility and compassion, forget relying on the greatness of 'God' to save us.
                          Which I agree with, but surely you realise you just totally contradicted yourself.

                              This is a very good and honest question here and this is a theologians answer

                              I think Christians often wonder what it means to turn the other cheek. Jesus taught in Matthew 5, “You have heard that it was said ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth’, but I say to you, ‘Do not resist the one who is evil, but if anyone slaps on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.’”

                              If we pay careful attention to the wording of that verse, Jesus is teaching about turning the other cheek has a specific meaning. If I’m facing someone and I slap that person on the right cheek, it would require me to slap the person with the back of my hand to make contact with the person’s right cheek.

                              So, I think what it means is that Jesus is telling us not to hit back when someone slaps us an insult. I don’t think it is really talking about escaping or defending ourselves against a violent attack that would do us bodily harm or even kill us.


                              There are a number of other passages of Scripture that encourage escaping from danger or even using force in self-defense, if necessary, and encourage us to defend other people against wrongful attacks. Jesus’s disciples carried swords, even after three years of traveling with Jesus. In the garden of Gethsemane, they had swords. Swords in the first century were used for self-defense. So, I think there are times in which self-defense to prevent us from suffering significant bodily harm is justified.

                              I’d like to table the following:

                              Bulldog fans
                              Stadia lovers
                              Left wingers
                              Trump admirers
                              Greenies
                              Julia Rudd
                              Arsenal fans
                              Religious zealots (he he...the irony escapes them)

                              Get back to you with the others later after a few beers.
